Should you be curious, you can find pointers to Darl McBride's "stolen
code" slides here:

The code in question, it seems, is arch/ia64/sn/io/ate_utils.c.  The file
carries an SGI copyright.

It would be interesting, now, to figure out where that code really came
from.  Time to do some digging...

Of course, finding the rest of the "millions of lines" (latest estimate
from Mr. Sontag) could take some work still...
